ZAMBOANGA CITY: Police are holding two Abu Sayyaf members after they were captured following a running gun battle in the town of Jolo in the southern Philippine province of Sulu. The two men – Jurpin Abdulhalim and Ayatollah Arabah – tried to flee after failing to abduct a woman late on Saturday in Busbus village. The woman was onboard a tricycle when the duo blocked their path and attempted to take her, but she managed to run and sought help from policemen near the area. Officers pursued the duo and engaged them in a firefight until two were cornered and captured.
